Noctua - Bild

The NM-I3 SecuFirm2™ Mounting-Kit makes all Noctua CPU coolers compatible with Intel's LGA1156/1155 & LGA1366 sockets for Core i5 and Core i7 processors. Designed to combine outstanding reliability, optimal contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation, SecuFirm2™ is an enthusiast-grade mounting system that meets the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use.

Please use the new NM-i115x kit for upgrading older heatsinks to LGA1150, LGA1155 or LGA1156. The NM-I3 kit is now only available to provide LGA775 and LGA1366 support.

Owners of Noctua CPU coolers* can obtain the NM-I3 Mounting-Kit free of charge via this form. A proof of purchase (photo, scan or screenshot of the invoice) of both a Noctua CPU cooler and either a socket 1156/1155/1366 mainboard or socket 1156/1155/1366 CPU are required.

The NM-I3 SecuFirm2™ Mounting-Kit is also available for purchase at some of our resellers. If you need the kit urgently, please consider ordering it via a local reseller.

*The kit can not be provided free of charge for the NH-D14 SE2011 (special edition for LGA2011 only) as well as for DX series Intel Xeon coolers. If you would like to use the kit with these coolers, please purchase it a local reseller. Also note that this kit is not compatible with the NH-L9 series low profile coolers and DO series AMD Opteron coolers.






1366 Ultimate Reliability
Noctua's SecuFirm™ mounting systems are renowned for their excellent reliability, minimize the stress on mainboards and make it possible to transport the system without uninstalling the CPU cooler. With tens of thousands of units sold, there's not a single known case of failure.

1366 Backplate with Screw-Threads
SecuFirm2™ utilizes a backplate with screw-threads that simply installs on top of the stock LGA1366/LGA1156/LGA1155 backplate. Not having to remove the stock backplate significantly reduces overall installation time and eliminates the risk of damaging the CPU socket. Thanks to the screw threads, the backplate can't slip during the installation process.

1366 Integrated Fastening Brackets
Fully integrated fastening brackets with fixed pressure screws and springs greatly facilitate the installation process. No more fiddling with screws and springs!

1366 Maximum Convenience for Enthusiasts
Thanks to the use of separate mounting bars, uninstalling and reinstalling the cooler only takes two screws. Loosening two thumbscrews gives full access to the socket without the backplate falling off, making it a child's play to change CPUs even if the mainboard is installed inside a case.

1366 Backwards Compatibility
SecuFirm2™ is fully backwards compatible with all Noctua coolers since 2005, making them safe long-term investments that can be used for several CPU generations.

Test verdict: "In the end, the NF-A4x10, NF-A8 and NF-A9 fans comply with Noctua’s Premium Fan statement. Backed by an outstanding six year warranty, these fans should last a computer’s life time without you needing to replace them. With pricing starting at $18.95 for the NF-A8, $19.99 for the NF-A9, and $23.99 for the NF-A4x10, you can’t go wrong buying these fans." (Justin Vendette, TechSupportForum.com)

21.11.2014 - OCDrift.com NH-D15
Test verdict: "There’s no doubting that the Noctua NH-D15 is a very decent air cooler. Noctua improved the shortcomings of the old flagship cooler NH-D14 by expanding the dual tower design and offer a much better memory compatibility, which allows for more memory kits with high-profile heatspreader to sit under the heatsink. The build quality is excellent with the heatsink’s aluminium fins soldered nicely onto the heatpipes. The SecuFirm2 mounting kit makes cooler installation easier and more secured."

21.11.2014 - 59hardware.net NH-U14S
Test verdict: "Il est tout d’abord apparu que le NH-U14S est un ventirad très bien conçu et qui doit être produit selon des canons très stricts, c’est tout du moins l’impression qu’on a en considérant sa qualité de fabrication générale. Puis, la phase de montage s’est montrée aussi facile que dans le cas des autres ventirads Noctua (et pour cause) et relativement rapide. Quant aux performances en refroidissement, elles sont, comme toujours pour l’instant chez Noctua (après trois tests plus que concluants), elles sont au-dessus de la mêlée et le tout dans un silence plus que relatif, à la hauteur de la réputation que le constructeur s’est patiemment forgée au fil des années."
